Letters To My 15 Year Old Self: Amy

Tonight, I’m honored to share the thoughts of one of my dear, life-longiest friends, Amy…

What was your biggest fear when you were fifteen? Having to Leave Dugway in about a year and go to College

What is your biggest fear now? Something happening to my family.

What did you love the most? My family

What do love the most now? My family

What was your biggest hurt you were most afraid people would find out? Not having any close friends and how much it hurt.

How did you overcome that hurt? Focusing on Band, Choir, and my faith

What is your current superpower? Being a Teacher and Mom

What is your current superpower according to a loved one? My caring heart

What is an obstacle you’ve faced to be who you are today? I suffered with depression several times during my life, but I learned it’s not my fault, it happens, and it will get better.

At fifteen, what part of you, physical or otherwise, were you insecure about but have now come to appreciate and wish you would have celebrated? When I was in the 7th or 8th grade I had a note put in my locker that said ‘Fat Pig’ with a picture of a pig on it.  Even after the principal was told he blamed me for the note because the only way it could have gotten there was if I shared my locker combo with someone.  So by 15 the depression I had been in was at it strongest, but around 15 was when I started my first diet and started losing weight and began to be happy with myself.  But that note never really went away and my weight has always been something I’ve never been comfortable with.  But now as the mom of two beautiful children, I don’t mind the extra weight that came with these two precious gifts!!

What is the one thing you would tell your fifteen-year old self right now, after experiencing what you’ve experienced as an adult? Make it a point in to always remember Let Go and Let God!

What is a misconception people have of you? That because I am quiet I don’t need friends or that I don’t like to hang out with friends

Share a picture/s that makes you feel strong and beautiful…


About T.D.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my corner of the blogosphere. I hope you like it here. This blog is where I ramble about the hats I wear (wife, mother, author, educator, etc) and everything in between. A wise man once said 'Happiness is a habit; cultivate it'. Here on this blog, I intend to do just that.
